Mental health is a key predictor of overall health and wellbeing. Anxiety is widely considered to be positively correlated to cardiovascular risk, and is thought to be responsible for exacerbating existing cardiovascular conditions. However the precise mechanism of this pathophysiology has not yet been discovered. This project will consider whether the presence of anxiety symptoms is related to increased Cardiovascular Risk in a cohort of healthy ageing women from the Women’s Healthy Ageing Project (WHAP).
The main opportunities for thisproject are:
- An opportunityfor publication
- Hands-on involvement in participant evaluation
- Workwith a large databasewith over 20 years of lifestyledata
- This project would be suited to someone with an interest in cardiovascular health
